Italian manager, Maurizio Sarri has three games to save his job at Premier League club, Chelsea, according to Goal.
Sarri is under increasing pressure at Stamford Bridge following an inconsistent run of results since the start of 2019.
Though Chelsea have set up a Carabao Cup final date with Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday, they have suffered humbling defeats at Bournemouth and City to drop out of the Premier League’s top four, and were beaten 2-0 at home by Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round on Monday.
Sarri’s assistant Gianfranco Zola or loan manager Eddie Newton could take charge on an interim basis, should Chelsea dispense with the Italian.
Many Blues fans have turned on Sarri after the loss to United, when the supporters were heard chanting ‘F*** Sarriball’ .
Derby County manager Frank Lampard has been linked with the job, but the Chelsea legend has yet to be sounded out, while owner Roman Abramovich’s friend Leonid Slutzky has also yet to receive the call.
With Sarri under intense pressure, Goal understands games against Malmo in the Europa League on Thursday, Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday and Tottenham in the Premier League next week will be decisive in deciding the Italian’s future in west London.
